Re: Knightmare Pointless V  Champion of Champions
I'll try Marta.
Re: Knightmare Pointless V  Champion of Champions
Annie says Marta  let's see what that scores her...
Another Lord Fear's Domain character there, but a pointless one this time  well done, Annie. Paul and Lucy have to help Marta work out how to seat a particularly awkward group of customers  let's just hope they were generous tippers after all that effort! Annie scores no points, leaving her total at 1, but of course all four players have everything still to play for!

Re: Knightmare Pointless V  Champion of Champions
Looks like Lord Fear's Domain is the key to this question. Too bad that was the one book I never freakin' owned.
Re: Knightmare Pointless V  Champion of Champions
Rosey says Smirkenorff  let's see what that scores her...
Smirkenorff hatches at the end of The Dragon's Lair, and he arguably makes an appearance at the end of The Forbidden Gate too, as Pippa looks back and "sees" him taking off. Rosey scores 1 point, bringing her total to 3.

Re: Knightmare Pointless V  Champion of Champions
I'll go for Rhark please!
Re: Knightmare Pointless V  Champion of Champions
Ross says Rhark  let's see what that scores him...
Rhark (along with his constant companion, Grippa) plays a part in The Forbidden Gate and even has a little dialogue. The goblin duo also appears in Lord Fear's Domain, hurling mud at each other and apparently playing a game where one always tells the truth and the other always lies. Ross scores 2 points, bringing his total to 3.
Now, let's take a look at the whole board for that question:
TREGUARD  6
LORD FEAR  4
FOLLY  3
PICKLE  3
SKARKILL  3
AESANDRE  2
GRIPPA  2
MAJIDA  2
MERLIN  2

MOTLEY  1
SIR HUGH  1
SMIRKENORFF  1
HORDRISS  0

ROUND 2
Remember, the scores from Round 1 are carried over and the player with the highest combined score (from both rounds) will leave us at the end of this round. We gave 6 people 100 seconds to name...
WINNING TEAM MEMBERS
So that's the first name of any dungeoneer or advisor from one (or more) of Knightmare's eight winning teams. Again, there are 27 correct answers on the list, and some of them are pointless. Ross, what is your first answer?

Oi, excuse me! I deliberately avoided Grippa & Rhark because you said uncredited characters didn't count. :P

Re: Knightmare Pointless V  Champion of Champions
For this question, Jake asked for "characters and named individual creatures"  the 'named individual creatures' part including creatures that aren't played by credited actors I guess.
A few surprises on that list  namely Hordriss, who I avoided because I was sure he'd be higher.
Once again, it's really hard to tell what will score low on this question. I'll go for Ray.

Re: Knightmare Pointless V  Champion of Champions
The question for the first round specifically asks for named creatures as well as characters, and I even gave a hypothetical example (Bob the Snapdragon) so the host accepts no responsibility for any misunderstanding that may have occurred.
Now, on to Round 2. Ross says Ray  let's see what that scores him...
Ray was one of the advisors on the winning team from Series 5, and he was kind enough to provide all his photos of the experience for the website about 10 years ago. So, Ross scores 1 point.

Re: Knightmare Pointless V  Champion of Champions
Well, I still think it was very confusing  I thought Smirkenorff and the Brollachan would count, being named and credited creatures like the example you gave, but the goblins wouldn't because uncredited creatures/monsters were specifically disallowed in the contest rules. Just to get this straight, it's OK to name uncredited individuals as long as the question asks for "creatures", but not if it only asks for "characters", right? (So Mug wasn't a valid answer for a question about characters beginning with M, but he would have been accepted if you'd asked for both characters and creatures?)
I'm just relieved I scored alright anyway so it doesn't matter!!
Not sure I can match that performance in the second round though. I'll try Nathan from the Series 6 team?

Re: Knightmare Pointless V  Champion of Champions
You are exactly right  character means any credited character, even if they aren't human like Smirkenorff or Brollachan, so if I'm also allowing uncredited creatures played by uncredited actors like Grippa, Rhark, Tiny, Neddy, Mug etc., I will specify "named creatures" in the question. This is just always how I have thought of characters and creatures, and I have done my best to explain the parameters of the game accordingly.

Nathan "Nat" Waite was indeed one of the advisors on the winning team from Series 6, and scores Annie 2 points.
